pidgin -> yahoo messenger file transfer

Asked by dinamic

I have problems sending files using the yahoo protocol to my friends. I'm using Pidgin 2.6.5/Ubuntu9.10 and he's using Yahoo! Messenger 7. The problem is that the transfer doesn't start. He can see me sending the file, and he gives accept but.. nothing happens. Sometime works only after 3-4 retries. I have this problem with all my friends using Yahoo Messenger for Windows.

I'm using pidgin on Windows XP and I've exactly the same problems.
I've also tried with an other account of mine to connect Pidgin and yahoo messenger original on he same windows and the problem also occurs. After several retries, transfert works, and then next transferts will also work.
